Hope In Despair
Written by Derrick Thompson
March 7, 2013

Verse1:
At just 4 years old, you were so cold
And just left..
I hated that you didn't fill your role
To understand how a man could just leave his child
Unprepared for the trials
That would drill his soul
U Got the mold compromised with questions
The whole situation comprised of stress and
The dreams between the nightmare
Like a one-on-one
Where I felt like the son
Of the man I'd become

-But look at me now-

Strugglin' to find a fit
You either see where you walk
Or you blind and trip
And for acceptance
I'd dive in the deepest pit
Stay awhile no matter how bad
The treatment is
without discernment, i was lost
So my secret sits
In the recesses of my heart
Just a weakness, this
Confused to the truth
And what I think it is
Subject myself to abuse
For approval quick
But not like this..

Hook:
When innocent eyes
Get exposed to light
You were never meant to cry
You're supposed to fight
On ya own 2 stand
& Demand what's right
So what you gon' do
Is press on and build ya life
Don't make my mistakes
Cause given time
You'll make enough of ya own
Just livin life
Take ya lessons as they found
Still more to find
I pray real sound reason
Support ya mind
And you grow

Verse2:

At 12, how could I convey the pain I felt
The hell to never confront my shame myself
I blame myself in part
An effect of the dark
But big mama saw the chaos inside my heart
Regret on start,
Half-truths are lies disguised
She unmasked you
And you let your hate inside you
Deny me
And that's cruel
So I used that fuel
And shaped my worldview
Angry and bruised
To live is to lose
Be used or abused
You eat or you're eaten
It's Barbaric rules
Only men can raise men
This a stone cold truth
Why fear and respect
Are too often confused
Control can't be something
That you decide to lose
But I gave it up
just like you decided too
Mad that I didn't have enough time with you
Feelin' like that missing peace
I'd only find with you
It's not there

Hook:
When innocent eyes
Get exposed to light
You were never meant to cry
You're supposed to fight
On ya own 2 stand
& Demand what's right
So what you gon' do
Is press on and build ya life
Don't make my mistakes
Cause given time
You'll make enough of ya own
Just livin life
Take ya lessons as they found
Still more to find
I pray real sound reason
Support ya mind
And you grow
